Although he is a great player Rafa Marquez has had a rough time getting signed.

Marquez has one of the top three highest salaries in the league but only made 44 appearances during his three years with the Red Bulls.

NEW YORK -- Rafa Marquez might have drawn the ire of New York fans and opposing players, but Thierry Henry believes the Red Bulls will miss the Mexico international. 

“We’re obviously going to miss him, his vision on the field and the way he calmed people down," Henry said. "You don't replace Rafa Marquez easily."
